For the Shoe Lovers: Create a Look for Less11/07/2011
Cute: Yes. Worth paying $150: No. We left Nordstrom inspired to re-create this look for less. Here's what we came up with...
The 'Amanda' Pump
The 'Carrie' Pump
How did we do it?? A pair of Target pumps + rhinestones & feathers from Michael's Arts & Crafts = Shoe la la, a one of a kind fabulous shoe!!
We ended up spending $4.19 on the rhinestones and $1.99 on a bag of feathers. One pack of rhinestones will be more than enough to do two shoes. I cut each sheet in half so I had an even amount of each size for each shoe. Mighty-Mend-It or super glue will work to adhere the "flair" (I think we used both).
We found the suede shoes at Target for $29.99 and they came in an array of colors. Payless also had inexpensive options:
Attention teens!! You could easily use this idea to create fun prom shoes at a price mom can appreciate. Or, why not add little sparkle to your holiday, office or New Year's Eve party shoes? Kiddie shoes would also be a good application. When baby starts wearing shoes, I'll be sure to add a little bling to hers too :)
